I would like to start the car, set the defrosters and heat settings, get out of the car, lock it while it is running go back in the house for a short time and then exit the house unlock the running car and leave for work. I thought that with the electronic key fob this would be easy. The only thing is after exiting the car with the motor running and the key fob out of the car, I can't lock the car.
Is there a way electronicaly or manually to acomplish this?
Any advice would be appreciated.
Here is to reviving an old thread...
I have this EXACT SAME PROBLEM. I don't want my car to get stolen while I am warming it up and hop back inside the house. The car keeps unlocking itself when I try to lock it with the car running and am outside the car with the FOB. Makes no sense really.
Any solutions to date?
